Sandwich, is it your bake or broil thats not working? You have two ignitors, one for bake and broil. One of them is your culprit. This is not a hard job. The post header says broil not working so the part number for that is WB13K0003. Bake ignitor is WB13K0004. To get at the bake ignitor you have to remove the oven bottom inside panel, remove the flame spreader (both easy). The click you are hearing is the board relay sending power to the ignitor. The ignitor has to draw so many amps to open the gas valve. The oven is pilotless. Catriver..post back.

I was turning the timer and clock knobs on my oven and now it won't work. I don't know what position they are supposed to be in ... any ideas?

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven
ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas
valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately
(see the link below).
In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

If you have a ohm meter you can ohm out the temp sensor. It has a harness that connects in the back. Unplug it and it should read around 1100 ohms at room temp. It sounds to me more like the ignitor itself. It has to draw so many amps to open up the gas valve. Check the sensor first. If it ohms out, change the ignitor. I think your problem will go away.

Assuming that this is a gas oven, your igniter is
Most gas oven systems today are 'electronic
ignition', and use a 'glowbar' type igniter electrically in series with an
Electrical current passing through the ignitor operates a
small heater that 'warps' an internal piece of bimetal to open the gas valve.
As long as the burner flame continues to heat the igniter, its electrical
resistance remains low enough to keep the valve turned on. If, for any reason,
the flame is extinguished, the igniter's resistance increases and the valve
turns off the gas to the burner.
While the valves are very reliable, the igniters have
become the most common parts failure on these systems. Which is to be expected,
I guess; they're doing their job in a gas flame!
Igniters come in two basic types, 'flat' and 'round', and
they can't be interchanged.
Each type operates at a particular amperage level, and is
matched to the type gas valve it operates. The stainless steel 'cages' that
protect them usually correspond to their actual shape, which helps you figure
out which one yours uses. And to make it even easier, there's pretty much only
One round one that fits them all. Flat ones vary only in the length of the
ceramic block to which they're mounted. Electrically they're nearly all the
Easiest way to test is just look in oven and see if you can see an orange glow coming from
the back of the burner. If no glow then you need to replace the igniter. If you
are at all handy nad have basic tool you can do the job yourself. Turn of power and gas. The igniter is attach?
with one or two screws or small bolts and two wires that are plugged into a
connector. You can take the old one to any appliance store (or Sears Parts) and
get a new one. They are delicate and easy to break so handle with care.
